Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.
Congress leader Jagdish Tytler has clarified that he has been the victim of a simple misunderstanding. Mr. Tytler is best known for not having anything to do with the massacre of Sikhs in 1984, although there are rumours that he may have been in the neighbourhood at the time.
More recently, he perplexed observers by encouraging his followers to smash barricades, torch vehicles and attack policemen, during a visit to Odisha, in full view of television cameras. Congress sources have denied that this is because their election strategy in Odisha is ‘setting fire to things and shouting a lot’.
“The lighting was very poor,” said Mr. Tytler, “And for a moment I thought I saw a man in a turban. I got slightly carried away. Such things happen. The police were very understanding, and did not arrest me. After all, it’s not like I was drawing cartoons.”
